About the Library

inspiration

This library is strongly inspired in this concept from Hila Peleg in dribble. See it below

Working example

For more details on how to use this library please refer to the example in this repository. You can see a video of the example working here:

Adding the Library to gradle file

dependencies {
    compile 'com.diegodobelo.expandingview:expanding-view:0.9.4'
}

Using the Library

Layouts

First of all include the ExpandingList in your Activity (or Fragment) layout. This will be the list of items (ExpandItem):

<com.diegodobelo.expandingview.ExpandingList
        android:id="@+id/expanding_list_main"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"/>

Now create a new layout (xml) file to represent the item (such as res/layout/expanding_item.xml). This will be the Item (header) that can be expanded to show sub items:

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="94dp">
    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/title"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_centerVertical="true"
        android:gravity="center_vertical|left"
        android:textSize="22sp"/>
</RelativeLayout>

Create another layout file to represent the sub items (such as /res/expanding_sub_item.xml). This will be the sub items that will be shown when the Item is expanded:

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="48dp">
    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/sub_title"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_centerVertical="true"
        android:layout_marginLeft="8dp"
        android:textSize="18sp"
        android:gravity="center_vertical|left"/>
</RelativeLayout>

Now create a layout file (such as /res/expanding_layout.xml) to represent the whole item, including both item layout and sub item layout. We will explain each custom attribute later:

<com.diegodobelo.expandingview.ExpandingItem
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    app:item_layout="@layout/expanding_item"
    app:sub_item_layout="@layout/expanding_sub_item"
    app:indicator_size="42dp"
    app:indicator_margin_left="16dp"
    app:indicator_margin_right="16dp"
    app:show_indicator="true"
    app:show_animation="true"
    app:start_collapsed="true"
    app:animation_duration="250"/>

Note that we included expanding_item and expanding_sub_item layouts created before.

Java code

Now that you have all the required layouts you are able to use them in Java code. Let's start inflating the ExpandingList:

ExpandingList expandingList = (ExpandingList) findViewById(R.id.expanding_list_main);

Create a new ExpandingItem in the ExpandingList. This method receives the expanding_layout created before. Yes! We can have different layouts for different items in the same list. The items will be created based on expanding_item layout and the sub items will be created based on expanding_sub_item layout:

ExpandingItem item = expandingList.createNewItem(R.layout.expanding_layout);

/*ExpandingItem extends from View, so you can call
findViewById to get any View inside the layout*/
(TextView) item.findViewById(R.id.title)).setText("It Works!!");

Let's create the sub items. There is a method to create items in batch:

//This will create 5 items
item.createSubItems(5);

//get a sub item View
View subItemZero = item.getSubItemView(0);
((TextView) subItemZero.findViewById(R.id.sub_title)).setText("Cool");

View subItemOne = item.getSubItemView(1);
((TextView) subItemOne.findViewById(R.id.sub_title)).setText("Awesome");

...

For each item you can set the indicator color and the indicator icon:

item.setIndicatorColorRes(R.color.blue);
item.setIndicatorIconRes(R.drawable.ic_icon);

ExpandingItem layout attributes

Attribute Name Type Default Value Meaning Mandatory

indicator_size dimension 0dp The indicator size in dp. No
